The Tusitiri Dhow comes to Vamizi

One of our favorite lodges in Mozambique, Vamizi Island, is now offering guests the unique opportunity to add overnight ‘sailing safaris’ to their stay in one of the finest dhows on the East African coastline.

Tusitiri Dhow has been immaculately restored and offers guests an enchanting combination of simplicity and indulgence. With cushioned seating areas to recline in, a 23ft wide deck and an incredibly romantic dining area built around the mast, this stunning vessel takes a step back in time as life slows to the pace of a gentle breeze.

Nights are spent under the stars on bedrolls laid out on the deck and meals of fresh fish and local produce are washed down with chilled fine wine in an unparalleled al fresco dining experience.

With no one to see other than the local fisherman crossing to and from the mainland in their traditional jahazis and small dhows, guests can spend an afternoon relaxing, fishing, swimming, snorkeling and watching the ebb and flow of the Indian Ocean from the deck of this majestic vessel, the more adventurous may choose to use Tusitiri as a base for some more remote scuba diving.
